Stiff Around the Collar

If you’re like me, you appreciate a crisp, clean, stiff collar. But who hates when the collar starts to lose form and begin to flap?  You lose the new shirt feel and you start looking like  you stepped out of the 70’s.  Well recently, I discovered these bad boys – Würkin Stiffs Power Stays – for your collar.

Instantly, my floppy collars were transformed back to shape.  The magnetic buttons can fall off, so you do have to pay attention to them, but they are also replaceable if you lose one.  Hope this little find helps you and your shirt collars out in a big way!

Style Diaries – The Basic White Tee

The Basic White Tee This summer, I am feelin’ the basic white tee! Yeah, I know, it’s not the latest groundbreaking trend in fashion, but lately, the white tee has refreshed my wardrobe in a lot of new ways. I not only pair it with shorts or linen pants to run around town with but, I’ve been able to wear it under my seersucker suits or sports coats with jeans. I love the relaxed yet polished look for work or special events.  It’s versatile and works within almost any setting and for all ages. It’s affordable and will keep you looking cool this summer.  Here are a couple of options at Nordstrom or Old Navy.
